Mission Statement

St. Francis Food Pantries & Shelters is established to alleviate the physical and emotional hunger of the poor and needy in a dignified and supportive manner. The St. Francis Food Pantries & Shelters takes a comprehensive approach in providing and supporting services that eradicate not only hunger, but the structural causes of hunger.

The St. Francis Food Pantries & Shelters supports a network of charitable programs that provide a broad range of services for those in need, including the provision of food, clothing, shelter, and related social services for the poor.

The St. Francis Food Pantries & Shelters also fights hunger through special events for those in need. Each location has customized its program according to the needs of the local community.

Working together with the staff and volunteers at various locations to promote emotional and physical well-being through programs sponsored by banks, hospitals, social service providers, and the corporate community, the St. Francis Food Pantries & Shelters raises awareness of the needs within the community and forges new relationships.

In addition to feeding the hungry, the St. Francis Food Pantries & Shelters works to eliminate hunger and its underlying causes by providing literacy programs, counseling for persons with addictions, support for victims of domestic violence, and training for those who help eradicate the various structural causes of hunger.
